To support student and new researcher (researcher within 10 years of terminal degree) participation at the ISES annual meetings. This award is sponsored by the Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology (JESEE), a Springer Nature publication.

Eligibility

Announcement Procedure
The Society shall issue a call for applications by means of announcements by e-mail to the membership. Generally the deadline for submission of the application will be in summer of the year in which the award is given. The deadline will be announced in the email to the membership.

Application Procedure
Applications must be submitted to the selection committee by the stated deadline.

That is, the list of the candidates considered qualified by the selection committee will be provided to each member of the selection committee who will rank the qualified candidates (e.g., 1 through n, with 1 the highest rank) and provide the ranking to a designated chair for tally. The Chair will then sum the score for each candidate and the winner will be the candidate with the lowest score (highest rank). In the event of a tie, this procedure will be repeated for the tied candidates.
